voted to repeal obama care 46 times! but they have stopped doing that now. since the shutdown, no more repeal obama care votes. repealing obama care now would mean they would be taking insurance from hundreds of thousands of americans. when they come back in january, it will be hundreds of thousands more americans who not just don't have just the promise of health insurance, but who are actually experiencing health insurance coverage, many of them for the first time in their lives. voting to repeal obama care was an expression of pure ideological exuberance for the first two or three or four dozen times that they took that vote, but now that people are getting covered, it's not that kind of vote anymore, and so, they're not taking that vote anymore. and so, now, what are they going to do with their time? six whole days to fill for the month of december. there's an interesting question when they've got in a way a small amount of time left between now and the end of the year, but six days for them. what are they going to fill it up with? they are on track to be a truly historic congress,

mentality's not going to change that. second, american children must master skills in school. but president obama has done very little to reform the teachers unions to encourage discipline in the public schools and to be blunt about why some kids fail. the primary reason children do not learn is that their parents are chaotic, apathetic or not around. it all comes back to parenting and to discipline in the public schools. money doesn't have much to do with it. when i taught high school in miami, private school, but a poor school, i had 45 kids in my class. no air conditioning. the school could barely afford chalk. yet, most of those kids learned and prospered. why? because they were forced to. president obama lives in a world of theories, not a problem-solver. he wants to throw money at everything. his big government programs are failing, period, and that's "the memo." now for the top story tonight, reaction. joining us from los angeles, radio talk show host amy williams and dennis kucinich. where am i going wrong here, mr. kucinich? >> bill, it's not that you're wrong, it's just that you'r
